I reviewed the Harry Potter Studios recently and took more than a few pictures. As you can imagine, I couldn’t quite fit them all in. So I thought I’d make it interesting. Below are eight photos from the trip. See if you can work out aspect of the Harry Potter series they are to do with. I’ll put the answers up later, but only fair to give you a longer chance to try and answer them.
I’ll have to ask my kids, they’ll remember. I so loved these movies but my kids loved them even more!!
Please do. they might well get all eight.
I think I might have scored big with this one! 🙂 Woohoo. Great photos!
Including the first two? I’d argue they are the toughest.
Such an influx of nostalgia!
I know. You really sense it when you go there.
Okay the last one – common room of Griffondoor [however the hell you spell it] in Prisoner of Azkaban or Order of the Phoenix going by the clothes I think, the next up The Philosophers Stone, next up The Half Blood Prince, next the door to Raven Claw in The Deathly Hallows or the Room of Requirement in the Order of the Phoenix, next ice sculpture from the ball in the Goblet of Fire, the Hall at the Leaky Cauldron in Prisoner of Azkaban, the house of the the Weasly’s in the Chamber of Secrets, the first I THINK is tea with Professor Slughorn in The Half-Blood Prince.
Wow, that is specific 🙂 Awesome you’re such a fan. Some of them I wasn’t even looking for the films, just what role they have in the series. They’re not all correct though you’ve done really well. What would be your second guess for the second photo?
Shell cottage where Charlie Weasly and his wife Fleur live or the childhood home of Voldemort although I doubt it but it could be. Not so much a fan as someone with an odd memory although I do like the books.
Fun quiz! I went to the Harry Potter tour a couple of years ago and had a wonderful time. I’d love to go again actually. My favorite bit was Diagon Alley!
It is an amazing part. The day was full of sunshine so the outside bits with the houses was my favourite.
1. Dolores Umbridge’s office in Hogwarts
2. Outside of the pub in Hogsmeade?
3. Entryway in Sirius Black’s family home, 12 Grimmauld Place
4. no idea – is this a mini set piece that’s supposed to be one of the foreign schools that competes in the Triwizard Tournament in book 4?
5. just looks like a regular old lamp in the Great Hall to me!
6. Fred & George’s shop, Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes
7. Giant chess pieces used in the finale of “Sorcerer’s Stone”
8. Gryffindor common room
Not bad at all. Very good. Putting up the answers now.
1. Dolores Umbridge’s office in Hogwarts in The Order of the Phoenix
2. The house where Harry was born in Godric’s Hollow, seen in “The Deathly Hallows”
3. The Crooked Hallway in The Leaky Cauldron pub
4. The Ice Palace statue at the Yule Ball in “The Goblet of Fire”
5. A lamp from the Great Hall, used in all of the films
6. Fred & George Weasley’s joke shop, Wizard Wheezes, first seen in “The Goblet of Fire”
7. Two of the chess pieces used in “The Sorcerer’s Stone”
8. Gryffindor common room
hey I did pretty well! 5 and 1/2, I’d reckon.
Can I say I got 9 3/4? 😉 ha
Very, very cool. My jealousy grows daily. Hahaha.
How did you do?
Oh gees I don’t remember. Maybe half? It’s been awhile since I sat down and watched the films, so I’m a little rusty.
Yeah! I got all of them! I wasn’t sure at first about Harry’s childhood home, but something about it made me think Godric’s Hollow. I LOVE your quizzes Alex!
You got them all without going? A momentous moment 🙂 http://cdn.funnyhub.com/2015/jan/harry-potter/harry-potter02.gif
I kind of shocked myself! I need to win the lottery so I can visit England. Love the gif!😊
An awesome quiz. I am a Harry Potter fan. A serious one, but I have never visited the studios nor had any real desire to do so – maybe because I am more fan of the books than the films, and think I know better how the Harry Potter world should really look like LOL 🙂
On a serious note, I answered only 4 out 8 correct. Somehow, I thought the photo number 3 is from the Order of the Phoenix headquarters (house) – Sirius’ family home? I don’t know why I thought that.
Where are you based? I love the books more, but the studios are still great. II d think you’d really like it. It’s clear all the people involved are fans too and it’s great to see all the happy visitors.
The UK, very shocking, isn’t it? I only advanced so far as to visit the 9 3/4 platform at King’s Cross and the shop close to it, but I cannot consider it visiting, because I was just passing by. I was really taken aback by all the commercial operations there. They sell your childhood HP dream of having this or that and they demand such high prices for it (e.g. people pay to have their picture taken at the platform? This is simply unacceptable). I think there is just something wrong with the whole concept of selling Harry Potter to the masses that way. And not like their products were of good quality too.
People seemed happy enough to buy it. You can get the professional photo if you like, but when I went most people took their own.
